About North Texas Animal Connections
North Texas Animal Connections is a rescue interaction area located in Forney, Texas. We are a 501(C)(3) Nonprofit, licensed and regulated by the USDA EIN 84-4492135.
Our mission is to bring our animal and human communities together for education, support, and service.
At our campus in Forney TX, we shelter, feed, and provide medical care for 85 animals – including multiple rescues every year. Our animals participate in animal-assisted therapy programs for persons with special needs, veterans and others suffering from post-traumatic stress, and elderly people struggling with the physical, situational, and emotional effects of advancing age. And participation is wonderfully therapeutic for the animals also; they benefit greatly from the increased interaction, affection, love, and support.
In addition to our veterinary, rescue, and therapeutic programming, our Forney campus is open year-round (known locally as “The Gentle Zoo”) so that children and adults of all ages can interact with our animals and take part in special activities and programs designed to educate and to inspire.
